Giant GorillaPod climbs from the trees

The original GorillaPod has helped us rediscover that spark that was missing between us and our digicams, and now our SLRs can benefit too with a new giant version.

The new model has the same features as the first version – flexible legs, rubberised feet – but has been beefed up to handle the extra weight of SLRs and compact camcorders.

We’ve already found it to be a very useful way of keeping shots steady – these shots of our new Stuff boat were taken with the aid of its surprisingly sturdy legs.

The new SLR model will be available in the UK later this month for around £40 – for more info go to Joby’s site here.
